    I hate to break it to you, but those two missions are pretty much impossible to finish all the way. First few stages might be doable though.

    Calculations showed me that you would need to farm aakas 1 (cheapest options) for 10 hours a days (20 runs on a 30min/run average) for 4 years straight.

    If I were you, do it as a side-goal passed stage 1 and hope the missions are going to be updated in the future.

    And as always, love to read your blog. :)

    I've read your reply not long after you've posted it, but thought to wait to answer when I'de my a new update.
    As for the Aakas-missions, the first is a struggle enough in its own right. And I am not very fond of them either, so after Stage 1 I'll leave them be. (Another reason besides the skill-reward is that I want to farm my own Arkoins to join the Smugglers, so maybe I'll run a few more after completing Stage 1.)
    And thanks for the kind words! :cool:

    I promise here and now, this post won't be as long as the previous one lol!

    Let's see what I've hunted and have to say about them. First a small Dromia hunt, they are always bad for me. Just so now. Hadraada second, they have forgotten how to drop a Bloodstained Axe 17 (L) it seemed, and also might have forgotten what a profitable hunt is. Nusul, small hunt of Oro, and the final Nusul hunt for me to finish Stage 4! Here's a little show of what their reward does for me:
    PRINT SCREEN 2017-03-26 18-38-17.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2017-03-26 18-38-32.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2017-03-26 18-39-16.jpg PRINT SCREEN 2017-03-26 18-39-28.jpg
    The notes that I've made of that last Nusul-hunt, wich I always post in the hunting table below, are so many for this hunt (#339), that I post them here:
    "[System]: Your Castorian Combat Mace Mk. I has reached tier 6.9 ; Dominax Original Garter Adjusted (L) ; Dominax Original Habu Improved (L) ; Scott & Barlow LP-10 (L) ; [System]: Your Corrosive Attack Nanochip III has reached tier 0.6 ; 2200 Pyrokinesis ; Nusul Stage 4 Finished"

    And them I had one of the most boring hunt of this year. I took all the Dominax Garters (L) from my Storage that I've looted from the Nusuls. Four at full TT, two about 50%, and went to Relentless Firebase Academy to hunt Halixes, using a Castorian Pioneer EnBlade-6 E.L.M Edition (L) as the main weapon of wich I've found two lying dormant in my Storage. It was so damn boring, that the next few days I was thinking like: "The reason I hunt Halixes if for the Weapon Handling-reward, wich is only good for Whips. The reason I hunt with whips, is because I've looted them myself and these are mêlée weapons after all. It's a circle argument. Hunt with whips to complete the Halix Stage 6, complete Halix Stage 6 to become better in the Whipper-prostanding."
    Luckly I had another whip, looted not long ago, that would be better used on the highest maturities. The Pioneer-6 (L) stayed, but this time as finisher. It was a lot more fun, by large. They were even good enough to grant me a small Global:
    Halix 007.jpg Nothing special, besides that this is my 7th Halix Global lol!

    Then I did my one and only Aakas-run of this period, everytime I promise to myself: "this or that evening I will run as much as I can.", yet when that evening is there I either don't play Entropia at all, or when I do I often deceide to hunt something else. Well, I am making progress towards finishing Stage 1, however slow it goes!
    After that I went to hunt Ferans. I thought that I could do them in one or two hunts, boy was I mistaken! 200 Done now, about 150 remaining. They are quite fun though, hunting the high maturities, and oh! they sure know how to hit. And hard at that too! The last one was quite a failure. I went to the Kadraas, and knew a bit of armour was wise to put on. I meant to take my Musca Adjusted, but took Musca (L) in stead, and thought "oh, why the hell not?" Because a fapfest against a high-regen mob is not a good idea. Because I've died like four times. Because loot, what loot?

    Goals:
    9. Max-out my GYRO Combat FAP-60 Smuggler (37 of 40 uses/min).
    22. Finish Dehera Sentinel & Magurg Female Stage 1 (47 of 100). +1
    23. Completed! Finish Nusul Stage 4 (4.8k of 4.8k).
    25. Buy lamps for my Apartment (3 of 4). +1
    26. Loot a full-TT Bloodstained Axe 17 (L) (111.32 of 124.00 PED).
    27. New! Finish Feran Stage 3 (1.0k of 1.2k). It will be done fast enough, very much likely way before any of the other personal goals will be done.

    The following hunts are almost all I've done in april. The last four of the previous post were the first, and I've finished the second the last of this post in may.
    I've hunted some mobs that I normally don't hunt, or did some things different in another way. First of those is a continues Aakas run, wich I've cut into four sessions. Unfortually the return is still bogus. Just like previous post, the amount of notes is rather big, so I post it here:
    Global (11) ; [System]: Your Corrosive Attack Nanochip III has reached tier 0.9 ; [System]: Your Corrosive Attack Nanochip III has reached tier 0.8 ; Level 19 Pyro Kinetic (Hit) ; 2400 Pyrokinesis ; Level 25 Pyro Kinetic (Dmg) ; Rakta Stage 3 Finished

    Then I tested the Beladoths, just to see how that would go. Loot aside (wich was rather shabby), I didn't like to hunt them. I've finished the Feran Stage 3, wich gave me the Anatomy reward. That didn't gave me an increase in uses/min of my Smuggler-Fap right away, but at the end of these hunts I've got up 1 uses/min. I guess it did its work, and it won't be for long untill I've maxed that one out *fingers crossed*! Some hunts later I did a long Otorugi hunt, the loot was terrible at the beginning, yet I pushed on like I was oblivious that they didn't even grant me a mini. Luckely I found a nice global, but then things went back to what it was before. Still, my overall return on Otorugi is ~106%, so nothing to complain just yet. Unlike the Halixes, with a return less then 75%! Last of the atypical hunts is one on Owekoos. I wanted to try them out, and finish the Stage 2 as well (not for the reward though, Aim *blêh*). Unlike the Beladoths, I did like to hunt them, and it was not for the loot, that was plain awful. I couldn't finish Stage 2 just yet, because I noticed that I didn't had enough Universal Ammo for that (Genesis Icerage uses ammo).

    Goals:
    9. Max-out my GYRO Combat FAP-60 Smuggler (38 of 40 uses/min). +1
    22. Finish Dehera Sentinel & Magurg Female Stage 1 (53 of 100). +6
    25. Buy lamps for my Apartment (3 of 4).
    26. Loot a full-TT Bloodstained Axe 17 (L) (111.32 of 124.00 PED).
    27. Completed! Finish Feran Stage 3 (1.2k of 1.2k).
    28. New! Finish Kadra Stage 2 (327 of 400). Like the Feran-goal #27, this will be completed quite fast.

    Now, some of you might be thinking "Why push on with the Otorugies for so long, when the loot sucked? You spend over 1k PEDs on them and nothing to show for it!" The answer is not easy, but I try as I may. Regarding loot, there are basicly two types of people: 1) those who believe in loot-waves & 2) those who do not. I am in most cases the second type, believing that previous loots has nothing to do with the next. It's like a roulette-table, where no matter where the ball has landed on all night, the change that it will land on any number is still the same as all the others. Now, I've said 'in most cases', because even though rationally thinking I don't believe in loot-waves, my mind does see a pattern where one hunt I get minies, items, and globals where-as another hunt I get no-looters, blazars and nothing more. But then I think that we have idea how the loot-waves are rolling. Is it based on the PEDs we spend? For any mob a different wave? How many mobs we kill? I've had enough hunts that started bad, and ended quite good. And the other way around. For this Otorugi-hunt, I was hoping for the loot to catch back on to what I've deemed normal. That means, all previous hunts where I ended with a profit. (Looking back at my data, I've had 4 out of 8 hunts with a profit. See, here my mind is tricking me also, I thought it was more like 6 out of 8!)

    I'll start somewhat where I ended last post: continue with a hunt that was bad from the beginning. As my bad luck would have it, I did two of those this time. Same outcome, yet different approaches and thoughts went into it. For both the spendings is not more then even a quarter of the bad Otorugi-hunt, but the relative hurt is just the heavier.
    The first of these two is a Kadra-hunt. I wanted to do them to complete the mission for the Anatomy reward. I did put on some better armour, the Adjusted Musca, but mental note: armour with even better stats would be preferred. I had to kill not even 75 of them, but 20 kills away from that goal I stopped. I simply couldn't keep on going, there just wasn't anything in the loot that could even be called a small mini.
    The second is a Magurg Male-hunt, that I did to complete the mission Stage 1. I did them, because I have an Aakas Key #3 in Storage, waiting to be used, and there are (as far as I know) Magurg Males in that instance. I already hunted them once before and killed some in higher level Aakas Keys with a group. I need to kill just 44 to complete that mission. Logically thinking, there won't be 40+ Magurg Males in Key #3, yet I wanted to complete the mission 'on land' first, before running the instance. Don't ask why, I don't know myself. I think that I did them naked the first time (at least that's what my records tell me), yet I deceided to put on some good armour: Gnome! Mental note: put on something far better next time! Now, although the loot was pretty much the same as that on the Kadraas, I kept going for them. It might had something to do with the fact that to kill 44 of these Magurg, I was killed myself close to 88 times, thus so to be able to say: "See, I can hunt them and complete a mission!"

    Don't I have anything positive to mention this time? Oh! But I do! The first two hunts are Aakas Instances, the first a solo one (divided into three sessions) where I almost did break even. Something weird did happen though, for wich I've opened a support case (and haven't gotten a reply yet after 10 days from MindArk). This is it:
    PRINT SCREEN 2017-05-06 14-47-30.jpg

    For the second I was invited to a teamrun in an Aakas Key #4, where I did end up with a nice little profit.
    Two Halix hunts done, both went quite well, and now I am just one very big or two/ three smaller hunts away from completing the Stage 6! The last Halix hunt went so damn good, that like previous time I post the notes here:
    Global (23, 10, 24) ; S & B Ardenner 6 (L) ; Melee Trauma Amplifier I (L) ; [System]: Your Dominax Original Boiga Adjusted has reached tier 0.8 & 0.9 ; Level 25 Whipper (Hit) ; 260 Treatment
    Wait .. three Halix globals? Yes indeed! Nothing grant, but I like it and this is what they are:

    The rest is all nothing very much out of the ordinary.

    22. Finish Dehera Sentinel & Magurg Female Stage 1 (56 of 100). +3

    26. Loot a full-TT Bloodstained Axe 17 (L) (111.32 of 124.00 PED).

    One last thing: I've started to look for a new society. Apart from the clichés like 'friendly and respecful' and I looking for one that fits one or two of my criteria: 1) a mêlée soc, 2) an Arkadian soc. If you are in one, or know of one, please let me know!
